BOWFINGER
1999, Universal, 97 min, USA, Dir: Frank Oz

Muppet master Frank Oz teams Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy in this hilarious look at movie-biz bottom-feeders. Bobby Bowfinger (Martin) is one of those, a wannabe producer convinced his sci-fi script would be a smash if only famed actor Kit Ramsey (Murphy) was in it. The solution to his problem: Shoot the film around the action star without his knowledge. With Heather Graham.
